My new 'neigh'bours...

..bad, bad joke I know, but I couldn't resist...


So, I live in a village on the edge of a town. We have a moor (or heath) opposite us. In fact our house was built around 1840 when the village was founded and the property is one of a few, which come with "Rights of pasture". This means that the owner of the house is free to graze their sheep on the moor; which could come in handy when I want to let my sheep stretch their legs!

The moor is a lovely place to walk the dog and let the kids run around. Last Sunday they went and wadded into the stream. As someone who grew up in the middle of bustling, grimy London, it was lovely to see them take their socks and shoes off and paddle in the clear water. They tried to get Cookie our pup in too, but she doesn't like to swim. At the moment there a hundreds of conkers on the ground as the moor has many Horsechestnut trees. We collected lots so that we can harden them and have conker fights.

But the best thing about the moor are the wild horses, they are so quiet and gentle and will come over to see if you have any good stuff to eat.









Enjoy your week,

We run a wild mustang sanctuary, and so I wanted to see if your wild ones look anything like ours (wingspur.org) is our web site. Love the pictures of the woods -- reminds me of the woods of Maine. A true fairy land. Stopping over from SITS....

Stopping by from SITS.
It sounds lovely there! Especially with the horses, I'm a horse girl.
Just visited England for the first time last December - all my husband's cousins, uncles & aunts are there. Blackpool & Cannock. We managed to get away for a short trip to York and London, as well. I can't wait to come back and explore more!
